A couple of highlights today including spotting of a solitary female Asian Paradise flycatcher darting around mid level of an Albizia tree and a solitary Black shouldered Kite hovering over an open space, diving down then soaring to another spot to hover and repeating the behaviour over again.
A raptor flew across us pretty low. I was not sure what it was but some of it markings look like a oriental honey buzzard. Heard many calls of raptors as well. This is a good indication waters around here are thriving with fish life that is able to support them(?). I also saw a number of illegal fishing happening around the reservoir as well. Hopefully authorities will step up in this area either through enforcement or more education
